Blast from the past – Mike Coman
Season(s) with Canterbury RFC
Flanker/ Number 8
Canterbury gave me the chance to develop my game in a highly competitive and physical league, this gave me a really strong foundation to kick on with my career. I am very fond of my time at the club.
Following an injury setback in New Zealand Mike joined Canterbury RFC to get a season of rugby under his belt before heading home to play in the NPC. Mike had to retire early due to a hamstring injury and is now back in New Zealand and expecting identical twin girls in June.
Following playing for Canterbury he went on to play –
- Canterbury (NZ)
- Hawkes Bay Magpies– NPC
- Wellington Hurricanes- Super Rugby
- Edinburgh Rugby
- London Irish
